The theft alert is designed for when you are comfortable to leave your bike and accessories unattended.
It provides up to 100m range via Bluetooth Low Energy.
Theft alerting is dependent on:
ICON’s internal algorithm for identifying movement
- being within Bluetooth range of the paired smartphone (typically 100m) – you will receive a warning in the event that the connection to ICON is lost
Theft alerting does not prevent theft. It should only be used where you are comfortable with the risk level of leaving the bike and the lights unattended.
Please note that on iOS, the app must be in the background for notifications to occur.
On Android, you should also update your notification settings to improve performance. Go to “settings” -> “sounds and notifications” then select the ICON App and set the “notification priority” to “high”.
